Virtual Re-decorating

I've just finished giving my website a little facelift. A few weeks ago I asked Mark at Fault 151 if he could design me a banner for my website and he came up with a fantastic spacey-looking one - the one that's at the top of this very blog. I love it! It's everything I like. It's spacey, sparkly, starry and shiny. Thanks Mark!

The website content is pretty much the same as it was - just a few small changes. I've added a 'Bead Forecast' to the homepage which is where I'll post details of upcoming beads sales and eBay auctions. I've also made the decision to stop selling jewellery. I may make the occasional piece for sale but I just don't have the time to create enough jewellery to warrant an entire webpage. I'll leave that to all you talented jewellery designers and I'll stick to making beads for you to turn into wearable loveliness!

The only things I have left to do with the site are the Bead Gallery and the Customer Gallery. I'll add the photos for those over the course of the next few days.

How do all you people who work at a computer all day do it?! I've been working on the site since 4pm this afternoon and my eyes feel all fuzzy and wrong. In fact, I think they need to go to sleep . . . . .

No warning?! I thought MY eyes were going wrong at first til I realised you had just changed the site. I was worried you had been hacked or hijacked or something! Don't DO that to me! :-)

I love the new look, I think there must be some new pages because I don't remember seeing the page which gives great advice on starting out in beadmaking which is very reassuring to me as I've only been doing it a few months.
